Overview

Parking is on the street in a quiet residential neighborhood, so no hollerin'.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

A brutally steep yet relatively short companion to the brutally long but relatively less-difficult Beaudry North Fire Road. For every hope-giving false summit presented to those climbing the north route, the south option features two or three firebreak-esque walls of graded, loose (or gravel-over-hardpack, rutted) 'roadway' that will suck your traction away and set your lungs on fire.

Start in the same spot as Beaudry North Fire Road and proceed along and around the debris basin as usual. Just as the road becomes unreasonably steep and rutted, it splits and the option to the left is Beaudry South. If you enjoyed the incredibly steep, water-wrecked, stand-up-and-pump section you just rode then, by all means, sign yourself up for more of the same and take the south road.

When Whiting Woods becomes rote, sadist MTBers opt for climbing South Beaudry. A fantastic training exercise, and not fun in either direction since it's too short to really enjoy on the way down. Bear in mind that hikers like how short it is and often opt to climb South Beaudry, summit Tongva Peak, and descend Beaudry North Fire Road.
